This is an OTB mix, ( 2 DAW workflow) but instead of using my go-to Monitor One's, this time I used Tannoy Reveals 6.0 (passives) as reference NF's, to test them out and see how they translate to other systems. (Power Amp is a Hafler Trans-Nova 1500). I've had them for quite sometime, just began using them about 4 days ago... I'd like to hear comments using the song below as a reference mix. Lead Vocals and Keys are performed by my friend Terry, backing vox and all other instruments are me. Drums are Superior Drummer. View: https://soundcloud.com/donnythompson/compassion-samp-mix-jan-9-14-full-render I uploaded this as a 44/24 .wav file, not an MP3...( although, what I don't know is, if even as a wave file, SC might still be adding some kind of file compression). Sound Cloud has been adding some weird EQ and phasing artifacts, intermittently, with my recent uploads lately, when I use MP3's, even at higher res rates of 250 and 320. Hopefully this .wav will be okay. So far, it sounds like the .wav file, "pre-upload". Anyway, if you can let me know how this mix sounds on your monitors, I'd appreciate it. (low-end heavy/shy, mids and hi's as harsh/smooth, etc.) And, FWIW, I don't care if you are using expensive monitors or cheap computer speakers - all are welcome to comment. Looking for more of a reference critique than a mix critique, but also understand that these can go hand in hand... so feel free to advise in any way you feel might be helpful. I need to know if I should be keeping these around as another accurate reference source, or if they are skewing the sonics to where I should dump them. Thanks d.
